Hunting With The .264 Winchester Magnum

 

One Of The Finest Rifle Calibers That I Personally Enjoyed Shooting

I have shot a few shells from several .264 Winchester Magnum Rifles that have never, ever let me down.

Accuracy, is just fine for anyone that wants one of the Best Running shot rifles. The best part of shooting this ultra-speed caliber, minor recoil from this cartridge, and this is what I really ...........appreciate.

I hate being cut just above the eye.

I have shot this gun 0ver 600 yards, and those who watched this are "Shell Shocked"!

There are several secrets to get the very best of this cartridge. The .264 winchester mag. can shoot a bullet threw 1 and 1/2 half plow discs. If you shoot a .270 winchester 150 grain bullet, you will be lucky if you even make a big dent in the the FIRST plow disc.

That is when I knew I had a real serious hunting rifle for whitetail deer and coyotes.

Some ask what I personally load and I tell anyone. it changes from powders-primers-rifle case age-make of brass. And I can loose a few hundred feet with any of these scenarios.

So, if you want to get the best out of this rifle, you must be a reloader with all kinds of extra tools and have knowledge of ballistics with knowledge of powders and primers to boot.

I personally cuss all the time, but after shooting my rifle. I have absolutely nothing to wine about.

Shooting a 100 grain Hornady bullet over 3600 feet per second, does things that no book can really tell a rifle hunter the truth.

But I do, and I have done the walk to give you some truth.

So, if you want more ..................e-mail me, and I will try to answer all you questions you might have.

Shooting a High Dollar .22 Caliber Rifle

Geno and Targets for .22

In the last few months I have been shooting a brand new rifle from Sako Arms. The rifle is the Model 94S Bolt Action .22 rifle. I now have a fiberglass stock bedded to the action with a Leupold Rifle scope to shoot my targets with. The Leupold scope is a 2.5 X 8 power scope with a after market base and rings to calibrate my tests with several different types of factory ammo that I have bought.

The Ammunition(s) that I have used in the last few months are:

Remington Yellow Jackets

Remington Game Loads

Remington Sonic Loads

Winchester Wildcat

Winchester W-W Hollow Point

Elan Target Loads

Blazer Solid Point

Federal Solid Point

American Eagle Solids

American Eagle Hollow Point

CIL Imperial Solid Point

CCI

After all the shooting.............The Remington Yellow Jackets had the largest Group of all. The Game Load was very good. The Winchester-Federal-Blazer ammo were all in the same class with my sako. The American Eagle had very good accuracy with above average feeding from the clip to the chamber.

Remington Has Several Excellent .22 shells available for the shooter.

Overall, all ammo used for plinking cans and balloons were excellent. With a bench rest, I could keep the majority of the ammo in a one each square group at 40 yards. Which I was very pleased with. Every brand of ammo I used, shot a brick of each through my sako and cleaned the rifle every 500 hundred rounds also.

Hopefully I will have some more info on some other brand name ammo, in the future.
